This article will present many different methods on how to get referrals and I will show you proof that these methods work!
You can literally get referrals almost immediately depending on what you already have available. Like having a Facebook account with some friends and followers or you have a Twitter account. Perhaps you have joined a forum or two and have access to some contacts via email. You can signup with a traffic exchange and get results on day one.
A lot of people have told me that they have no idea how to get referrals but it is really one of the easiest things to do once you learn how! Like tying your shoelaces 😀
However to get ACTIVE referrals or referrals that will invest or buy something can be a little bit more challenging but becomes easier the longer you apply the methods I will share with you and will prove it by showing you my own results, not just with theory.
WARNING – This is going to be a very long article with a lot of insight I have gathered over the last decade and will be rich with details and regular updates, I could probably write a book or two on how to get referrals therefore I will not write everything all at once but will be adding information on a regular basis (all free). So this is one of those pages you want to bookmark and come back to once in a while to see what has changed or improved.
Social Media – Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are the main 3 I use.
The first thing you should understand is that not all referral links can be shared on social media as they may violate community standards or policies, even if you trying to share legitimate links or sites you have already received payments from. Facebook is probably the most notorious for this and it can become a bit of a frustration BUT there are many ways to get around it so no need to fret, just keep reading 🙂
On Facebook you can have a limit of 5000 friends! That is a lot of contacts you can reach out to on a daily or weekly basis and the “trick” here is to be consistent. This way you will start creating a presence and naturally people will start to follow you just out of curiosity, especially if you sharing results they would like to achieve themselves or that prove you have indeed been paid.
There is no point trying to influence someone unless you do it naturally by showing results you have already achieved, even if they are just small results, make the effort to achieve something before promoting it. Sharing proof of payments on your timeline is a perfect way of getting the attention of your contacts. Another great method is to copy that same post, change some words (to avoid spamming as much as possible) and then share it in groups with people that have very similar interests, so targeting niche markets is an ideal way of getting ACTIVE referrals that will actually participate in what you have to offer them.
When you gathering friends and contacts on your FB account as potential referrals make sure to get them from the kind of group that matches what you promoting. Extra tip – befriend those that are actively posting themselves, these kind of people are ACTION TAKERS and will more likely be active participants or invest once they join your offer.
Here is the proof I mentioned earlier!
I tested my methods on a site called Coastal City and here are some stats and screenshots of my results.
From November 20th 2019 to December the 8th 2019.
Days Active – 19
Direct Referrals – 120
Indirect Referrals – 475
That is an average of 6.3 direct referrals a day and an average of 25 indirect referrals a day. This average should gradually increase as times goes on.
As you can see from the table above one has to go through quite a bit of traffic sources to get these kinds of results. You don’t just share on one or two platforms and expect immediate results and people to make deposits. This takes work, some basic understanding, patience and consistency! Some days will be better than others. Keep in mind this is just one platform out of many that I earn from. Not all projects are expected to last forever and some of them even turn into scams unfortunately.
As long as you don’t take this personally or use it as a excuse to quit, you WILL be successful making money online.
In the time it took me to write up unto this point and take the screenshots with minor editing I already got another direct referral and 6 indirect referrals. That is what you can expect once you get rolling.
These are just the top 16 but surely you get the idea of what you can expect.
If you focus on getting referrals instead of making money, the results will come I assure you, it’s just a matter of time. It’s like going through a deck of cards to find the aces, there are 52 cards in a deck but only 4 aces, it’s the aces you want but sometimes you have to go through all 52 cards to find those aces and don’t just discard the rest once you have found them, they are just as important as the aces!
Give your undivided attention to all your prospects wherever possible and share your knowledge with them for free without expecting ANYTHING in return. Always remember by helping others you are helping yourself and gaining knowledge also. If you apply this attitude and mindset most people will respect this and naturally follow your lead.
Always lead by example and not just in theory and remember the number one rule for investing – Never invest what you cannot afford to lose!
On that note I will end here for today and continue further when I have more time to write.
